Idaho Walk Bike AllianceOur speaker this week will be Cynthia Gibson, Executive Director of the Idaho Walk Bike Alliance. "The Idaho Walk Bike Alliance, a statewide 501(c)3 nonprofit, promotes active transportation as healthy, safe and reliable for all Idahoans."
GOTRMany thanks to Toni Ramey, Executive Director of Girls on the Run (GOTR) for her presentation last week. The big event coming up is the annual 5K run on May 21 that concludes the spring program for these middle school girls. About 570 girls will run the race in Kleiner Park. Volunteers are needed. The Greater Boise Rotary Foundation has provided $10,000 in funding for this event.
Don’t miss out on one of the great times of 2022 - Rotary Night at Zoo Boise.  On May 4th the Zoo’s gates will close to the public at 5:00 PM and reopen to Rotarians and their guests at 5:30.  This is a terrific Zoo Boise - Rotary partnership to benefit Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique.  Zoo Boise provides the Zoo free to Rotary which charges a nominal admission, 100% of which goes to the second Global Grant providing health care to the Gorongosa Park buffer Zone communities. 
Every year the District sells Raffle Tickets, the winner to be drawn at District Conference. This is the District's major fund raiser for the year. Each club will get a share, too! And look at those prizes!! Every member is given a book of ten tickets and is expected to sell them all! They have to be turned in no later than May 15th ish. You can send funds to the club via Venmo or write a check payable to Boise Metro, and get it to Scott Swan.
Plans are nearly complete for this year's District Conference in beautiful Sun Valley, May 20-21. District leadership promises a great event, including the Saturday evening banquet (featuring Brian Shul, a fighter pilot with a fascinating story)  and a variety of service projects on Saturday afternoon. The best advice is to stay at the Sun Valley Hotel so you don't miss any of the action! We have a block of rooms reserved  - $179/ night. For more details check the District 5400 website. Early registration ends March 31. Every Rotarian should attend a District Conference. Our club will reimburse attendees $100, toward your bar bill. Cornelia will be creating a "giving tree" of gift cards for the silent auction.
Mark your calendar for these upcoming events:
  • April 20 - Fellowship at Western Prosper
  • May 14th -  Saturday Spring Fellowship - Greenbelt Cleanup and Corn Hole Picnic
  • May 20-22-  District Conference - Sun Valley 
  • June 28 - Pass the Gavel banquet at Cottonwood (no meeting that day)
